. with the best intentions and all efforts, president clinton vowed that north korea won't go nuclear. why is this nuclear deal different than any other nuclear deal? [laughter.] >> well, we don't know yet. no, we don't know yet. i think it's important for everybody to understand this is hard. because the technology of the nuclear cycle, you can get off the internet -- the knowledge of creating a nuclear weapons is already out there. and iran is a large country and it is a relatively wealthy country, and so we have to take seriously the possibility that they are going to try to get a nuclear weapon. that's what this whole exercise is about. having said that, if you look at the history, by the time we got an agreement with north korea, they essentially already had a nuclear weapon. with respect to pakistan, there was never the kinds of inspection regimes and international sanctions and u.n. resolutions that were in place. we have been able to craft an international effort and verification mechanism around the iran nuclear program that is unprecedented and unique. that doesn't mean it's easy

president clinton raised the minimum wage, same cry but it didn't happen. i agree with senator hutchison, do a separate carveout for students paid at a lower wage as opposed to adults trying to protect themselves and their families, that makes sense. that's reasonable. there ought to be grounds for a reasonable compromise so we can begin to do something about the income inequality in this country. >> let me switch to you foreign policy. secretary kerry met three hours with prime minister netanyahu. he's heading back to jerusalem for more private meetings with netanyahu. they agreed to disagree about the short-term iran deal. senator hutchison, his argument, kerry's argument, we still are keeping sanctions other than freezing assets. this will be better for israel in the long-term and we won't agree to a long-term deal that gives iran the ability to have a nuclear weapon. netanyahu's argument is there would be breakout capability. what do you think the secretary of state should be doing? >> i think you're seeing some of the effects right now whereas mr. netanyahu was going to stop putting set
